• The FORCE Cancer Support and Information Centre is OPEN, 9:30am to 4:30pm weekdays, no appointment needed.

Could you support FORCE this Christmas with a gift?

FORCE remains a significant and important source of support for people in Devon affected by cancer, despite the impact of COVID-19. The virus has brought extra layers of anxiety and distress for those living with cancer or dealing with a new cancer diagnosis.

FORCE has continued to provide free cancer support and information throughout the pandemic, face-to-face whenever we could or by phone and video link if that better served those needing our help.  Over 10,000 sessions offering a variety of support were delivered between March 2020 and April 2021.

Our services have not changed but the way people can get support has.  Counselling including bereavement and family support, our nurse led information service, physio and exercise programmes, benefits advice, support and education groups and wig fitting service are all available face to face but also via video and phone calls now.

One of our greatest challenges in this recovery period is getting the message out that our main Support Centre in Exeter is fully open.  If you are able to spread this news in your community, we would be very grateful.

We will be working hard over the coming months to raise the funds to restart our much valued face to face support in community locations and our Christmas campaign – Give a Gift is just one way that you can help.
